Formas is tasked with promoting and supporting research of the highest scientific quality and relevance in the fields of environment, agricultural sciences and spatial planning.
Every year, Formas grants just over 1.5 billion Swedish kronor in funding for various projects. About half of this research funding goes to projects through so-called open calls that we announce annually. The other half of the research funding goes to targeted calls that we announce both nationally and internationally as well as to co-funded research. We also fund communication projects, conferences and workshops.
Here are some of our different types of financing.
